This 5 day /4 night retreat is where we get to live out the Daoist concept of Wu-Wei (non-doing / effortless action). Wu wei is closely connected to the Daoist reverence for the natural world. It means striving to make our behaviour as spontaneous and inevitable as certain natural processes, and to ensure that we are swimming with rather than against the flow of life.
‘The Way never acts yet nothing is left undone’.
This retreat will also improve your understanding of the Five Element Theory of how energy works according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Expect a practical and theoretical immersion into the 5 elements and food energetics, yin and yang practices for each element, tea meditations (a mindfulness ritual), an ecosomatic art and dance workshop, delicious vegetarian meals and a breathtaking environment in which to learn and unwind.
